Thomas Cronin is Professor of Biological Sciences, University of Maryland, Baltimore County. His research interest is in Visual ecology: the evolution, adaptation, and specialization of visual systems of animals ranging from the simplest marine invertebrates to complex animals like mantis shrimps, cuttlefish, whooping cranes, and right whales
Jenny Walsh is a glass artist who uses glass in combination with other materials to explore the interface between art, science and technology, examining both the role of glass in scientific discoveries, as well as using glass to convey scientific concepts.

“Within my art practice I examine ways in which climate and current cultural awareness influence how we regard landscape phenomena”.
Catherine Richardson experiments with natural processes using paint, inks, pond water and metals; building a library of textures by freezing, thawing, evaporating, heating and burning. Using these textures the artist compiles mixed medium ‘paintings’ on panel or paper. Richardson then uses digital techniques to organize a collage of scanned textures, creating imagery that expresses landforms experienced.
Leon Radschinski-Gorman graduated from the MA Art and Science course, University of Arts London where he researched how relationships between sound and image can be reconciled from a cognitive science and neurological point of view. This essay presents a cross-modal and embodied account of creativity with sound in order to understand better the processes involved in being creative.

Can artistic innovation be inspired and guided on knowledge taken from the field of plant genome evolution? I explored this question by subjecting a glitch artwork to processes analogous to those shaping the evolution of the maize genome, that are whole genome duplication (WGD), subgenome bias fractionation and genome dominance, respectively. The mosaic composition of […]
